Day two in one word: busy. While nothing will compare to last year when Stan Lee was in attendance, there were definitely a lot of people in attendance on day two. Unlike last year, most people were not nearly as disgruntled. I heard people actually fought in the parking lot. But then I also heard someone say that they didn’t like Archer. So I don’t know what to believe anymore.
Regardless, this year there were no fisticuffs – except this one.
Because the crowds were so big today, I knew I would not get the opportunity to interview anyone. So I stood in line for that Karl Urban autograph I promised my wife. I loved the way the staff and volunteers handled the lines for autographs. They gave out tickets so that you could travel about and report back at a later time and jump in the line. It was awesome to meet my man-crush, even if it was only for a brief moment.
I also went to two panels. I bet you can’t guess who was at one of them. Yeah, it’s probably good I won’t get that interview.
The other was with Paul Amos and Rachel Skarsten of Lost Girl. I have never seen Lost Girl but I wanted to drop in on this panel because I had read that Skarsten had gone back to school to get a degree in English literature and classic history. The panel did not disappoint. Their banter was very amusing.
Finally, I ended the day with the costume contest. Whenever I think that I know anything about popular culture, I go to a costume contest and realize I have no idea about at least two domains – anime and video games. While the contest could have moved forward more quickly, there were some excellent costumes.
So that was my day two. Busy but fun-filled! (Call me, Karl. Please.)
